Nak cheese!

Nudibranch | May 22, 2013 03:00 PM

I recently returned from Nepal, and managed to smuggle a kg of nak cheese with me.

It is glorious and I will miss it so much once my supply is gone. It's a hard cheese, similar to pecorino, and it takes some force to cut it. Keeps well unrefrigerated, thankfully.

The taste is rather mild, although as you eat it it does become a bit sharper. The smell is sharp and musty, much stronger than the taste. I like it, but most of my fellow trekkers didn't like the smell but liked the taste.
